I am guessing that would be a much more attractive option as far as ping etc goes for our friends in Japan and Korea... players on the AU server blaming Asians for all their losses may be in for a bit of a shock should numbers be affected.

 

Wait and see!

Oh man! I'm pretty sure Hong Kong is where my connection actually hits Asia, so this might actually benefit me slightly!

I guess it depends if they leave SG up which i can't imagine they'll do. Assuming HK replaces SG we'd then get a different bunch to blame everything on.

It just occurred to me that this might be a prelude to our going back to a single server.

If numbers on AU drop due to players moving to HK then yes, I would imagine making a server 2500 kms closer to Japan and Korea could affect the AU server numbers!

The thing is Stewie, that a lot of Aus/Nz based players play a lot on the SG server. My contact list is mostly Aussies and Kiwis, and when i scroll over them I notice that half of them are playing on the SG server. You could reliably double the OZ server peak numbers if Aussies and Kiwis were forced to use thier own server.

 

The reasons being that when the AU server population is low, most of them dont have the patience to wait for a battle and tire of being timed out. And even if the AU server numbers are higher, they prefer the SG server because you are a higher chance of getting a 5/10 - same tier battle, or a Grand Battle. You also have better matchmaking when running a 3 man platoon, and you have a better chance of spawning a battle if you run a 3 man tier10 platoon.

 

I have raised these issues on this forum heaps of times, still no pro-active actions have taken place.

 

If they shut down the SG server and move to HK, then the ping from Australia will be even worse. I will be glad for this as this will force the Aussie and Kiwis to actually play on their own bloody server, not desert it for convenience. 

 

But the admins really need to attend to the issue of spawning battles when server populations are low. I am one of those guys trying to spawn a battle when the AU server only has 200 or 300 people. I support the server and want it to work, but do get frustrated with that problem

Some good points Brutal - time will tell I guess if the influx of Aussies and Kiwis negates the exodus of the Japanese players heading for better ping in HK. I doubt we could "double the numbers" but maybe "double the amount of Aussies and Kiwis who are on board" if the difference is clear.

 

MM is an issue I 100% agree, however as far as I am aware it is not just an issue here (Asia/ANZ) so hopefully will get looked at "soon" since it affects EU/RU as well.

 

The 3/5/7 MM kills platoons IMO - one pretty decent social aspect of the game out the window. I would love to platoon more but being bottom tier time and time again gets old pretty quick, as does timing out in Q whilst trying to create some entertainment for the thousands(!) of viewers on twitch! Luckily from a social point of view clans can do count ins which can be fun trying to scalp the clan mate on the other team, but could be so much better if players and clan mates could simply play together...

 

Low population battles is another issue entirely - what's the answer? 5v5?

 

Watch this space.

Does anyone know what the ping for indonesians is like to HK vs to ANZ? I'd guess most of the Thai / VN players would be better off to HK, but Indo possibly not.

That is an important clarification for sure

Looks like most of Asia will migrate to the HK server. Japanese are a decent customer base, can understand why WG would want to accommodate them and good placement for China too. Maybe OK for Indians. but otherwise it is up to Aussies and Kiwis to populate their own server or perish.

 

Good. There is a massive potential market down here to tap into, no reason why we cant survive on our own IMO

For those curious, i'm getting ~150ms to HK from Sydney, vs ~110ms to SG.
